Today was a great day ....thanks to Mom. She invited the kids and I over for an apple crisp baking morning, and lunch. Together we made 9 apple crisps, and she made a wonderful homemade soup for lunch with warm pitas....it was delicious. The perfect thing to do, on a blustery day where the weather couldn't decide whether to rain or snow.

I also borrowed my mom's sewing machine as my $20 'dress maker' sewing machine was pretty well dismantled by my 2 year old. Needless to say, I'll be closing the den door when I set up Mom's machine. I have 2 aprons I'm trying to sew, they will (potentially) be stylish aprons that I won't mind wearing (that is...if aprons can be stylish??!!). I'll post pics once I get them done.

This afternoon I was treated to a snuggle with Gabe as he climbed up on me and said "Mommy?" .... 'I like your neck.' Then he snuggled his head into my shoulder. It felt so nice to sit quietly in the rocker with my son, smelling his sweet hair and chattering about everything and nothing.

That's what makes a great day for me.
